My husband have back pain whose age is 45 what a medicine he take to cure his back pain and he has also asthma problem.
The back pain may be due to lumbago that is sacilization of lumber vertebrae or may have osteoarthritis of lumber vertebrae. He should take supplement tab calcium sandose daily for lack of calcium. Get an xray of done ap and lateral view. You may consult a orthopedic surgeon. Regarding asthma it could be allergic asthma due to cold. Avoid exposure to cold climate. It will be alright.

Dear Lybrateuser, - Keep semireclined position in bed, raise the head end about 10-12 inches, see that breathing is comfortable & then can rest in the same position - take your medication as directed by your physician, also in case of emergency - if not much improvement then you have to go to the doctors clinic or a hospital.

I have a 4 year old son who has been suffering from pneumonia since last year he has also been treated at the hospital and the doctor gave him antibiotics after discharge. I always take him for regular check up and the doctor said that his condition has improved and that there's nothing I should worry about but he always gets recurrent cough and cold and sometimes fever. I'm worried I don't know what else should I do? most of the time he's always on medication. And the doctor said that repeated x ray more than twice a year is not recommended. What else should I do to find out the reason of his condition. Please advise.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
As any other mother you are little more worried about your son. These things are common till the age of 5 years, believe your doctor and have peace yourself. See if he is playing and growing. Enjoy being with him rather than worrying. Leave it to doctor about his health, follow his advice, and just take care of son's emotional well being.

While sleeping I snores and in-between my breathing stopped for like 12 to 20 seconds. I guess it's sleep apnea. Can you tell me of any cure. Besides operative cure.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Lose weight. People who are overweight have extra tissue in the back of their throat, which can fall down over the airway and block the flow of air into the lungs while they sleep. Even a small amount of weight loss can open up your throat and improve sleep apnea symptoms. Quit smoking. Smoking is believed to contribute to sleep apnea by increasing inflammation and fluid retention in your throat and upper airway. Avoid alcohol, sleeping pills, and sedatives, especially before bedtime, because they relax the muscles in the throat and interfere with breathing. Exercise regularly. As well as helping you to lose weight, starting and sticking to an exercise program can have a major effect on the duration and quality of your sleep. Aerobic and resistance training can help reduce sleep apnea symptoms, while yoga is also good for strengthening the muscles in your airways and improving breathing. Avoid caffeine and heavy meals within two hours of going to bed. Maintain regular sleep hours. Sticking to a steady sleep schedule will help you relax and sleep better. Apnea episodes decrease when you get plenty of sleep.

Laryngitis - Signs You Are Suffering From It!

MS-ENT, MBBS
ENT Specialist, Noida
Laryngitis - Signs You Are Suffering From It!

Laryngitis is referred to as the inflammation of the vocal cord or the larynx situated in the throat either due to it’s over usage or certain infections. This condition spreads rapidly and does significant damage to the larynx. Laryngitis can be acute or chronic. If not diagnosed timely, laryngitis can cause significant problems in the respiratory system such as experiencing trouble while breathing. Laryngitis can be treated with antibiotics and with other home remedies such as gargling with warm salt water, giving your voice some rest and drinking sufficient water (around 2-2.5 liters) in a day to keep dehydration at bay. Make sure you avoid any caffeinated beverage and alcohol if such a condition develops. In urgent cases of laryngitis, a prescribed dosage of corticosteroids and antibiotics can provide relief.

Causes
The causes of laryngitis depend considerably on the form of laryngitis. If the laryngitis is of acute nature, then it might have been caused due to an infection and it tends to go away after suitable treatment. In the case of chronic laryngitis, the inflammation is caused due to a frequent exposure to irritants. This condition has long sustained effect and tends to be painful. The causes of laryngitis are as follows:

  1. Apart from viral and bacterial infections, an acute form of laryngitis can be caused due to the impairment of the vocal cord as a result of constantly talking or screaming at a high-pitched voice.
  2. Acid reflux (acidity) and frequent instances of sinus infections can cause chronic laryngitis.
  3. Excessive consumption of tobacco and alcohol might cause chronic laryngitis.
  4. Constant exposure to toxic chemicals might cause chronic laryngitis.
  5. In some cases, prolonged huskiness of the throat might be a symptom of a serious underlying medical condition such as cancer or vocal cord paralysis. In such a case, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible.

The symptoms of laryngitis are as follows:

  1. A constant sensation of dry throat which might lead to permanent impairment of voice
  2. Persistent sensation of titillation in the throat coupled with a persistent dry cough
  3. Significant pain while swallowing food
  4. Feeling of fullness in the throat
  5. Severe pain in the throat

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ent Specialist.

I have Asthma/COPD and would like to know if consuming milk/yogurt/milk products will increase phlem in my lungs. Can you please also suggest some home remedies for asthma/copd.

DNB(Respireatory diseases), M.D
Pulmonologist, Coimbatore
What is your age, smoking status, complaints.Is it asthma or COPD. Both are different problems with different solutions. Moreover there is no specific food restriction for asthma/ allergy. Every individual will have different allergies.So take fresh milk/ yogurt. If you are properly diagnosed with asthma/ COPD take proper inhalers( Controllers LIke formeterol/budesonide or solmeterol/fluticosone) and keep some relievers like salbutomol with or without ipratropium for emergency purpose.

No, if cough is due to viral infection, it will become worse, overall alcoholic beverages are useless as medicine for cough.
